Oddone trial to start Tuesday

ok, then what are "ID checkers" doing getting into altercations with bar patrons at 1am? As sorry as i am for this mans family i feel like there is more to the story...other than some psycho randomly choking people out...." Sep 23, 09 3:52 PM

Oddone trial to start next Thursday

Hopefully this kid gets a fair trial. I know if some bouncer, ID checker or whatever ever they want to call themselves put their hands on me...there would be big problems.

Im looking forward to seeing the facts of this story come to the surface." Sep 24, 09 3:41 PM

Oddone trial to start Tuesday

Not sure where i said that ID checkers or bouncers werent needed....if reister was merely an ID checker than what was he doing ordering patrons around to get off tables? That sounds like the job of a bouncer to me.....

You dont know the facts of the case except that someone died, so your 'unexcusable' comment really doesnt hold water right now. " Sep 24, 09 3:46 PM

Former Amagansett doctor sentenced to three years in prison

Shes cute - hot is pushing it" Oct 2, 09 9:51 AM

Okay - so he got 3 years, big deal. He will be out in 1 and he will get credit for time served. Being that hes been in lockup since April he will sit in the cell another couple months and be set free. AFter his parole is over he could probably go to Mexico and practice medicine there....

Eh." Oct 2, 09 9:54 AM

Club members offer $1 million for Oddone bail; trial nears start

Well...i worked at a local golf club for many years. I didnt caddy but worked in a different area where you deal with the golfers personally. Over time you become 'friends' with these members that you see pretty much on a daily basis. Many of whom are usually very wealthy....

A wealthy golf club is usually a good place to make connections.

Ill assume Mr. Oddone probably caddied for these gentlemen on a regular basis.

Witness recounts fatal struggle in Southampton bar

Its never a good idea to assault anyone and then turn your back on them. The bouncer...or 'moonlighter' had ZERO right to put his hands on anyone. What if for instance after the shove Tony landed his head on that bench and died?

This is why i barely go out to these bars/clubs anymore. Too many tough guys roaming around.

Lose - Lose situation in this case

Proving Oddone's intentions will be burden of prosecution

i agree, the reporting on this case is very lackluster." Oct 30, 09 4:06 PM

Tymann defeat mocked at cemetery that clashed with Southampton Town Trustees

One cant expect to win an election when your only voters are clueless facebook cronies. If he has any future in politics i suggest he find a new circle of friends." Nov 11, 09 4:05 PM

Oddone trial nears second month of testimony

I doubt this case will have any impact on the membership of The Bridge. People put up more than what your house is probably worth to become a member there. The members are there to do business, golf, look cool, act snobby to the help and thats all...they definitely do not care about this trial.

In fact. I worked at a private golf club myself for a number of years (i wont say which one, it wasnt the bridge). I was there there the morning of 9/11 and the members were all storming around demanding to play golf after the course was closed after the towers were attacked. Its right up there in sicking human behavior i have ever witnessed.

In case you didnt know, The Bridge is a private golf club...you cant pull in with your '87 oldsmobile and say lets tee it up. I doubt anyone is taking your advice of whether they should not take a tee time at the Bridge. LOL. Oddone obviously had a good relationship with some members there, i dont think they would help out someone coming off the street.

Medical examiner says Reister could have recovered if chokehold had been released in time

move to Iran or somewhere similar then report back." Nov 17, 09 8:34 AM

Mr. Reister had no right putting his hands on anybody.

Oddone trial nears conclusion; defense witness challenged

...until its someone who you know or are close with that is dealing with something like this. Then its okay i guess... :/" Nov 24, 09 4:44 PM

Oddone won't take stand; both sides rest, and closing arguments slated Tuesday

I dont think Oddone wanted to kill him...teach him a lesson maybe. The guy had a bad heart and the chokehold made matters worse.

I bet a movie is made about this." Nov 26, 09 11:24 AM

does he/she have to be? the testimony has been printed here in this very online newspaper.

Fact: Reister put his hands on Oddone first." Nov 28, 09 9:36 AM

I actually find it a bit refreshing to see such rich and successful people reaching out to a person in need. If they thought he was a dirtbag i highly doubt that they would have extended themselves they way they did." Nov 28, 09 9:45 AM

Well said.

Mr. Reister must have been getting at least 75k a year with full benefits working at the county lockup. Why would one want to risk all that and a family for probably 100 bucks a night dealing with beligerent drunks at a bar? Id rather make that extra money doing something else so i could be at home with my family every night,

Isnt it also against policy for a correction officer to also work as a bouncer or other authority figure?" Nov 28, 09 9:58 PM

Jury deliberations continue in Oddone murder trial

i have a feeling we will see a verdict within the next day or two." Dec 7, 09 1:08 PM

Seventh day of deliberations ends with no verdict in Oddone case

99.9% of the time a 'bouncer' has to physically remove someone from an establishment the bouncer isnt harmed. he picked the wrong guy to put his hands on that night....

" Dec 7, 09 4:20 PM

you need to go read up on the definition of murder before typing..." Dec 8, 09 3:35 PM

I wish this trial was on TV....

Another thing i was thinking...if Mr. Reister pushed Mr. Oddone off the table and Mr. Reister didnt turn his back on him how exactly did he wind up in a chokehold?

Theres no way a guy 4 inches shorter than a man 75lbs heavier than him automatically gets him into a hold like that. This isnt the WWF. There must have been a short physical exchange between the two for Oddone to even get into position to make that hold on him. Oddone probably put him in that hold to stop being manhandled and obviously took it too far. Maybe Oddone watches too much UFC." Dec 8, 09 8:17 PM

Im wondering id the jury is deadlocked...

Dont the juries do a vote at points throughout their deliberations? One would think after a week without anyone budging with their vote they may say they cant come to a verdict...especially if its closer to 50/50." Dec 10, 09 9:20 AM

perhaps mr. oddone was fearful of what was going to happen to him once he let go..." Dec 10, 09 3:42 PM

Deliberations in Oddone trial resume Monday with testimony reread to jury
